my toy camera

I opened my mailbox this week to find that a very good friend of mine, somewhat of a grandfather to me, sent me something very special. This man is a woodworker that has an incredible talent for transforming simple lumber blocks into wonderful wooden toys.  When I was just a little girl he crafted a doll house made from old bowling lanes (we are a bowling family) and among many other toys, he built my brother a wooden train that just this Christmas was handed down to my nephew.

We are great pen pals, writing to each other about life, how we spend our days, the people we spend our time with, the places we go, our interests ::: he knows of my love for photography and somewhere along the way I strongly hinted that I would love a wooden camera made by his hand.

I dreamed of one like this, but Gordy, you have exceeded my expectations. How beautiful is this! I simply couldn't love anything more! thank you. thank you. thank you.
